The Blakeley Blog

The Blakeley Blog is a forum for discussion and discovery of the incredible natural and cultural treasures found at Historic Blakeley State Park.

Many of the poems in the Blakeley Blog by Sue Walker appeared in an earlier version in In The Realm of Rivers, published by NewSouth Press in Montgomery Alabama.

In the heart of a tree,
as in the heart of a brother,
sister, father, mother,
there is a space for hiding.
When the wood-world is dark
and the wilderness, in wonder,
taunts with things human beings
try to understand, limbs reach out
to embrace the sky. Step out,
pass the time of hiding. 
Step out. Beyond;
a rainbow waits to show its colors.
The brightest shade is teal.
